  2. ENHANCING JOB OPPORTUNITIES BY USING ADAPTIVE FLEXIBLE ABBREVIATION EXPANSION TO INCREASE TYPING RATE

    SBC: Gms Systems            Topic: N/A

    WITH THE EMERGENCE OF THE COMPUTER AS A BASIC TOOL IN THE WORKPLACE, TYPING IS AN ESSENTIAL VOCATIONAL SKILL. PEOPLE WHO ARE UNABLE TO FULLY UTILIZE STANDARD KEYBOARDS HAVE SIGNIFICANLY LOWER TYPING RATES. ABBREVIATION EXPANSION IS A POWERFUL TECHNIQUE FOR SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASING THIS RATE. CURRENT EXPANDERS RESTRICT THEMSELVES TO FIXED ABBREVIATION SCHEMES TO ACHIEVE ACCEPTABLE PERFORMANCE. THIS ...
